As I understand it, when to take Social Security has a lot of wash considerations. You can take it later, but then you are foregoing months and years of payments. Will the slight increase in payments cover the lost payments? I see a lot of obituaries of people who paid into Social Security all of their working lives who die at age 64.

HIram, it's pretty easy to calculate when the earlier start crosses the line of the higher payments. You may find that point exceeds your life expectancy and if it does, you CERTAINLY need to get started enjoying your retirement NOW.
